What is the perfect volunteering opportunity?

Employee volunteering has been rising in recent years, and employers in London’s financial districts have been leading the way with many tens of thousands of valuable hours donated (including several thousand to the Brokerage).

But what is the ideal volunteering activity?

We think it might be something immediately rewarding, as well as with a longer term impact. Something that makes use of a volunteer’s unique skills, knowledge and experience. An activity that is relevant to the business and the wider industry.

Perhaps something that any member of staff can take part in, no matter their specific job role nor level of experience or seniority? How about something that is as convenient as possible for volunteers to get to, and involves minimal time away from their desk? An activity that require little, or no, preparation beforehand?
